Encapsulated Salicylic Acid
Soapy Twist Micro Encapsulated Salicylic Acid is an novel product developed in- house by our experts with patents in microencapsulation technology. This product is a microencapsulated salicylic acid with 30% loading of Salicylic acid.
Microencapsulation is a process in which tiny particles or droplets of actives are enclosed or coated with a protective or carrier material, forming microcapsules.
Our microencapsulated salicylic acid is easy to incorporate in most of the rinse off and leave on formulation. Unlike regular salicylic acid which is difficult to incorporate in formulations as it leads to viscosity reduction and destabilises the formula , our microencapsulated salicylic acid doesn't affect the your product stability.
The major advantage of microencapsulated salicylic acid is its effective delivery into the skin and scalp. The microencapsulated salicylic acid in the final products breaks when its applied (shear) on skin or scalp which leads to targeted delivery of Salicylic acid. This helps in better results of Salicylic acid in a product.
Salicylic acid is a common skincare ingredient known for its ability to exfoliate the skin, unclog pores, and treat various skin conditions such as acne, blackheads, and whiteheads.
Benefits of Encapsulated Salicylic Acid
- Controlled release: Encapsulation allows for a controlled and gradual release of salicylic acid over time. This can help minimize potential irritation or side effects that may occur with direct application of salicylic acid.
- Enhanced stability: Salicylic acid can be sensitive to light, air, and temperature, which may reduce its effectiveness over time. Encapsulation can protect the active ingredient from environmental factors, thereby increasing its stability.
- Targeted delivery: Encapsulation can help direct salicylic acid to specific areas of the skin, such as deep within pores or to particular skin layers. This targeted delivery can improve its efficacy in treating skin issues.
- Reduced skin irritation: Encapsulation can reduce the likelihood of salicylic acid coming into direct contact with the skin, minimizing the potential for irritation, redness, or dryness that some individuals may experience when using salicylic acid.
Prolonged effectiveness: The encapsulation process can help keep salicylic acid effective for a more extended period, ensuring that it continues to work on the skin over time.
